Do you ever have one of those days when you simply have to eat something sweet? If the answer is yes, I might have a perfect thing for you – a chocolate fudge! It’s extremely easy to make and so sweet and tasty that just one piece is enough to satisfy the most intense sugar cravings.
A few days ago my husband went thorugh a similar situation. I don’t know if I told you that he practices badminton and that not long ago he became a badminton coach! This would be great news, if it weren’t for badminton tournaments he occasionaly attends, which sometimes last all day long. On such days he would usually come home feeling so exhausted that he would go straight to bed. The next day when he woke up the first thing that he would say to me is “Vera, is there anything sugary in the house?” And this is just a beginning of a day of overeating and gobbling chocolate bars, cookies and anything sweet he can find.
Every time I foresee that this is going to happen, I turn to, as I have already mentioned, chocolate fugde! This time I decided to double the stakes! I added Snickers chunks to a semi-cooled fudge base and put it in the frigde to cool completely as I waited for Darko to wake up and embark on his usual sweets quest.
No sooner had I finished cutting the fudge, than my husband appeared on the door uttering his favourite line. Seeing the fudge he grinned with content and stuffed two squares in his mouth. Two hours later it was time for another round! This time he skipped his usual quest and immediately opened the fridge and went for the fudge. A couple of rounds later he concluded that Snickers chocolate fudge is just what he needed to satisfy his sugar cravings on days following the tournament.
To make things even better even my son, Marco, profited from the whole situation, since he managed to keep his candies and sweets that would otherwise vanish into thin air 🙂 .
